    Print Quality Troubleshooting Guide

    Print Quality
    Troubleshooting Guide



    This guide is a great place to start if you are trying to improve the quality of your 3D printed parts. We have compiled an extensive list of the most common 3D printing issues along with the software settings that you can use to solve them. Best of all, the guide uses a large collection of real-world images to make each issue easy to identify when examining your own 3D printed parts. So letís get started!

    Use the thumbnails below to identify the picture that most closely represents the quality issue that you are seeing in your own 3D printed parts. You can click on the thumbnail to jump that that portion of the guide for immediate recommendations on how to resolve the issue. If you are not able to locate your issues from the thumbnails, feel free to scroll down and read through each section of the guide in more detail. There are plenty of useful tips to learn that can help improve your 3D printed results!



    Not Extruding At Start


    Printer does not extrude plastic at the beginning of the print






    Not Sticking To Bed


    The first layer does not stick to the bed and the print quickly fails




    Under-Extrusion


    Printer does not extrude enough plastic, gaps between perimeters and infill




    Over-Extrusion


    Printer extrudes too much plastic, prints looks very messy




    Gaps in Top Layers


    Holes or gaps in the top layers of the print




    Stringing or Oozing


    Lots of strings and hairs left behind when moving between different sections of the print




    Overheating


    Small features become overheated and deformed




    Layer Shifting


    Layers are misaligned and shift relative to one another




    Layer Separation and Splitting


    Layers are separating and splitting apart while printing




    Grinding Filament


    Plastic is being ground away until the filament no longer moves, otherwise known as "stripped" filament




    Clogged Extruder


    Extruder is clogged or jammed and will no longer extrude plastic from the nozzle tip




    Stops Extruding Mid Print


    Printer stops extruding plastic randomly in the middle of a print



    Weak Infill


    Very thin, stringy infill that creates a weak interior and does not bond together well




    Blobs and Zits


    Small blobs on the surface of print, otherwise known as zits




    Gaps Between Infill and Outline


    Gaps between the outline of the part and the outer solid infill layers



    Curling or Rough Corners


    Corners of the print tend to curl and deform after they are printed




    Scars on Top Surface


    The nozzle drags across the top of the print and creates a scar on the surface



    Gaps in Floor Corners


    Gaps in the corners of the print, where the top layer does not join to the outline of the next layer



    Lines on the Side of Print


    Side walls are not smooth, lines are visible on the side of the print



    Vibrations and Ringing


    Vibrations that cause oscillations on the surface of the print, otherwise known as "ringing"



    Gaps in Thin Walls


    Gaps between thin walls of the print where the perimeters do not touch




    Small Features Not Printed


    Very small features are not printed or are missing from the software preview




    Inconsistent Extrusion


    Extrusion amount tends to vary and is not consistent enough to produce an accurate shape
